Samsung’s Galaxy Z smartphone will not be released in the UK, the Korean electronics giant confirmed.
According to emerging report, Samsung told The Inquirer, “There are currently no plans to launch the Galaxy Z in the UK market.”
The Samsung Galaxy Z runs on Google’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, and features a 4.2-inch display and 1GHz dual-core processor. Nearly all these features are also found in the Samsung Galaxy S II, which is one of the most wished for and the best selling handsets in the UK.
However, the photo snapper on the Galaxy Z smartphone is sub par at 5-megapixel compared to the Galaxy S II handset’s 8-megapixel camera.
It is possible that Samsung might have decided not to release the Galaxy Z in the UK to avoid to take the focus away from the Galaxy S II.
Meanwhile, price comparison site uSwitch said that Galaxy S II outshined the iPhone 4 in popularity in June for the second consecutive month.
Sales rankings also revealed that the Galaxy II was also ahead of the HTC Sensation, the HTC Desire as well as the BlackBerry Curve 8520 in June.
